Sheet Music: Score
Round Roads : for symphony orchestra / Robert Davidson.
by Robert Davidson (2015)
I composed Round
Roads in Canberra, Australia, where I spent my formative
years. The music is something of a landscape, reflecting my
attachment to the distinctive country around the city, its recent
burning through bushfires, and my nostalgic childhood memories of
the area, experienced particularly on bicycles. There are also
elements of the bluster and grandiosity of political
speech-making of Canberra's parliament.
Vibrant and dramatic with a melodic focus.
